I have been a member of flickr for over a year it is free to sign up. It is a great place to make friends that share the same interests and have other people comment on your photos. There are groups to join, you can create sets for your photos and add your photos to specialized groups. I am a flickr addict. Try it and see.

Today the food network audience is able to start voting for who will win The Next Food Network Star? The four finalists that are left are the charismatic fast talking Guy, the bald culinarian Nathan, Reggie the sweet baker who tries hard, but does not quite nail it, or Carissa the French food enthusiast who has improved drastically in recent weeks. The show is on Sunday nights at 9PM/8C on th e food network. The Finale airs on April 23rd at 9PM. I do not like this show as well as I like Top Chef, but it is worth watching if you are interested in what it takes to prepare food on television. From what I have seen it is a juggling act. You have to be multi-talented and be a complete package of know how, cooking skills and on-air television personality all wrapped up in one package. In my opinion, just because someone is voted off a reality show it does not make them nothing. The people who are voted off had a lot of courage to go on the show in the first place. The way reality shows are it would be difficult to be able to relax and not be nervous, so even if you are truly talented the short time they are there the judges might not be able to see that. Who is your pick for The Next Food Network Star?
